About this fund

This fund is aimed at supporting UK based charities who are working in International Aid Development to deliver their work. Grants of up to £10,000 are available for projects working in the areas of Education or Health outside of the UK. 

Purpose of this fund

The fund will offer grants of up to £10,000 for International Aid and Development projects working in Education or Health. 

Applicants will be asked to describe the impact of their work and the needs and issues of the communities or countries in which they intend to deliver the project.

Where possible and if there is competition for funding, this programme will prioritise smaller charities and those where the grant request is not less than 25% of the total project costs.
